A polygenic system of expression of the quantitative character radius incompletus was shown to be sensitive to external and physiological stresses: heat shock, gamma-irradiation, isogenization, etc. This stress response involved mobilization of retrotransposons. Heavy heat shock induced transpositions of Dm412 and B104 in three and one isogenic lines, respectively. The induced transposition rate was (2.5-11.0) x 10(-2) per site per sperm per generation, i.e., 1-2 orders of magnitude higher than… CONTINUE READING
